Set amid 3.75 very private acres, this unique Cape Dutch-style 4-bedroom/5.5-bath home stands out above all others on the pristine island of Nevis. Reminiscent of the gabled winery homes in South Africa, the exterior is a coral stone rendered vernacular finish suited to the climate. The decorative plaster exterior elements were produced by artisans brought in from Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean. Interior by Spencer-Churchill Designs Ltd. of London.
The gracious front entry hall leads to a spacious great room with two sitting areas, one with a fireplace. Adjacent is a calming library/study with built-in mahogany bookshelves and desk. The home features a large gourmet kitchen with maple butcher-block counters and custom tiles. Adjacent is a side, screened dining porch, perfect for breakfast, a laundry room, a powder room, and pantry storage.
This very grand and spacious estate house has 16-foot-high ceilings with deal, beamed and bamboo-reeded ceilings that are typical of homes in Cape Town. There is a cool louvered side porch furnished in rattan. Downstairs is a fitness room, wine storage, and laundry room. The wood floors are 400-year-old reclaimed floorboards brought in from the Savannah River in Georgia. The piece de resistance is roof deck with panoramic views of the sea, mountain, and the resort. The property falls into a deep ravine on the south side and is surrounded by a dry evergreen tropical forest.
